|A.S. - 20040701 [NTT013] - A.S., Repeater, Rym Hakiki, ***, jsld|
Once again we are honoured with another one of Fabrice Planquette's projects. Having previously released on Entity as Element.Act and Acta (and multiple times as part of xE Phalanx), he's by far the most present artist on our label, and with good reason! The current project (A.S.) is the result of his collaborations with artists such as Repeater, Rym Hakiki, *** and jsld. After some audio sessions with those respective persons, Fabrice reconstructed the various recordings into the 4 great tracks...

|Elin - Impressions [NTT009] - Elín|
Elín Anna Steinarsdóttir (Reykjavík, Iceland) was introduced to her father's analogue equipment at the early age of 6, and she quickly gained intuition for it. Raised in a family of musicians, she was since then determined to continue the age-old tradition. In "Impressions", her first public appearance, she brings tracks of abstract, unusual guitarexperiments, as well as persuasive minimal electronic sequences and tweaked recordings of everyday objects, acoustic instruments and environments...

|8E Phalanx - Revery [NTT015] - xE Phalanx, acta, Chango Feo, Ellende, Erratic, Kaebin Yield, no Xivic, Plagasul, sig~int|
After being under construction for over 8 months, 8 artists from around the world have finally finished yet another xE Phalanx chapter, this time in a veritable David Lynch fashion. Not only have they created a lengthy work (9 consecutive parts) that goes along quite well with the concept of "auditory movies", they have at the same time composed a soundtrack for it, and all this by using mainly self-recorded sounds as a source! Everything was linked together like a chain of thoughts, which draws...

|Dotkràz - Untitled [NTT027] - Dotkràz, m__, ps|
ps and m__ - the two hard working individuals behind the stellar Enough Records and Con-v - joined forces to create an intelligent melting pot of various musique concrete styles, which pretty much reflects the quality of their own brainchilds. In this unique cooperation they have constructed a polymorphic opus from just about any type of source material. It seems combinations of concrete vs electronic ambiences continue to find their way to Entity, and this one in specific sums the whole variety...

|Say My Lovehole, Hanga Gallon - Universumix [NTT014] - Say My Lovehole, Hanga Gallon|
In this release, you'll find Say My Lovehole (Sami Louhela/Ceniq) on the tapedeck and Hanga Gallon (Henkka Kyllönen/no Xivic) throwing an enormous diversity of samples at it. In a virtually random matter, they improvised "Universumix" on the spot - disregarding any common musical tendency. It resulted in what is arguably our most controversial release to date. Expect something quite raw, hard to digest, maybe even a listening endurance test, but nonetheless also an interesting excursion into so...

|CD-R - Aspekt / Audience / Ascent [NTT026] - CD-R|
Back to Russia, where Nikita Golyshev (CD-R) and Evgeny Novikov performed an impressive live session (13/03/05, Moscow), which formed the building blocks of this quite experimental album. The unique approach of this duo allows for the most distant elements to be combined in something that sounds at times like a (sur)real environment, and at other times more like a guitar thrown in a trash compactor (if you've enjoyed NTT014 - Universumix, you realise that this isn't necessarily a bad thing)...

|fp - Fiuk & Csajok [NTT022] - fp|
Fabrice Planquette (fp), who has released a lot of his fantastic stuff on Entity since its conception (as element.act, acta, a.s. and in most xE Phalanx projects) and quite recently also on Enough Records (fp - Traces), has returned with another great 13 track album! His newest work is again an example of perfect production and a variety of contrasting styles. Interestingly enough, "Fiuk & Csajok" stays remarkably coherent as exotic rhythms, infectious melody, field recordings and filmic passage...
